Image forming apparatus capable of increasing throughput of duplex
An image forming apparatus operable in a duplex printing mode includes a
liquid ejecting head, a conveyance member, a charger, and a controller.
The liquid ejecting head ejects liquid droplets to respective first and
second faces of a recording medium to form images thereon. The conveyance
member conveys the recording medium while attracting the recording medium
thereon by electrostatic force. The charger conduct a charging operation
of the conveyance member to generate the electrostatic force. The
controller is configured to control, based on a state of the first face
having the image formed thereon, the charging operation during an image
formation on the second face, and control a pause operation of a
conveyance of the recording medium after the image formation on the
